A BMX rider blasts an aerial about 6 feet high out of the shallow end of the bowl (it’s about 6 or 7 feet deep, so he’s about 13 feet above the bottom of the skate bowl!) at Empire Park Skate Park in Newcastle, Australia. I think this trick is called a “Pancake” because the bike is laid over flat in the air like a Pancake. It’s the first time I’ve ever taken photographs of a BMX rider and he was very consistent, making it easy to get some action shots.
